Twisted Bangs

Although summer is almost over, it’s still pretty hot here in North Carolina. And when I’m running errands, and get a little warm, the first things to go are my bangs.
The Twisted Bang
Here is the video tutorial:
Here is the YouTube video. (it’s larger and clearer)

And here is a close up step by step:
1. Begin by grabbing about a 1 inch section near your part and at the front of your hairline.
2. Twist away from your face once, then grab more hair and add it into the twist.
3. Twist away from your face once more.
(you would think I could have taken off my nail polish since it was all
painted on. But I had just finished up this project and I was focused!)
4. And continue to grab more hair as you twist  until you have reached the “twist length” that you want!
5. Finish by inserting a bobby pin, zig zag side down, in vertically.
And then you are finished! Spray a little bit of hairspray and you’ll be all set!
Let me know if you have any questions about this style!

    I just found your blog and I absolutely love it!! I have such thin hair and have never really known what to do with it and always just wear it straight down. Your blog has helped me so much and everyday I check to see if you have posted anything new that I can try! Thank you so much for helping me!!

    Wow! I always saw this cute style but I’m hair challenged so I didn’t know how to do it. Now it’s my new go-to! Thanks!!

    I’ve seen a few of your hair tutorials on my Pinterest lately and I’ve just spent the last 20 minutes reading through your blog. I’ve noticed a few times you mention to put the bobby pin in zig zag side down – I always do the opposite. I’m sure there’s a reason you specify to do it “upside down” (to me) – could you share?
    Thanks for all the hair tips!!!

    Sarah: Hi! Thanks for reading! Putting the bobby pins in zig zag side down will help them hold better and also look “cleaner” in the hair. The zig zag part grabs against the hair that is pulled tight so it will lock into place!

    You share so many helpful ideas. I’m suddenly a big fan, especially of your gentle kind nature and openness. I’ve already tried some of your ideas and bought recommended product to coax my hair into new styles. If your hair is good, it makes for a better day. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise.

    This is the first blog of yours I have tried. After 3 or 4 tries (and watching the video along with it) I happy with my results. It turned out really cute. I have super naturally curly hair, and I wear it the same amount straight (thanks to my GHD) as curly. I think this twist will work with my curly hair too. Can’t wait to try another one! First on my list is getting some Aquage. My hair thinks you’re pretty awesome!

    I’ve just discovered your blog and I am LOVING it! I do have one question for you though: why do you suggest always inserting bobby pins with the ridges side down toward the scalp? I’ve never heard that tip before and am very curious! Thanks!

    I just stumbled across your blog yesterday from pinterest. LOVE IT! I’m very hairstyle-challenged. You make it look so easy! I never even knew there was a wrong way to curl hair. Huge difference! Can’t wait to see what else you have to show us!

    I found your blog through Pinterest and I love it! Thank you so much for sharing all your ideas and tutorials with us. I have started wearing my bangs like this a lot lately. I made the mistake of convincing my stylist to cut bangs and they aren’t working, so I’m doing anything I can to disguise them until the are longer! Thanks again for all the inspiration!

    Kate, Love this idea because I am always looking for more options for my short angled bob. Can you please post some more ideas for bangs or short styles. Thanks so much, what a great blog.

    Here’s probably a new question for you. I’ve been in food service for the past 20 years and have to wear a hair net. Needless to say you feel less than human. My hair is a bit below my ear, thin and usually limp… not a good picture! Any ideas? It’s okay if you don’t. I think the only real answer is to retire!!!

    Hi Kate! I love this idea for my growing out bangs! But every time I try it, the bobby pin has a hard time staying in place. Do you have any tricks on how best to insert the bobby so it does not come out! I’m sure it is just operator error! Thanks for your blog! I love it! :)
